Chlorine is capable of eliminating a whole range of bacteria that may otherwise be dangerous in a city’s water supply, along with any bacteria that may be harbored on the very pipes used to deliver that water to households. With that in mind, chlorine has played a critical role in improving the public health of municipalities that have utilized it since the mid 19th century. However, once municipal water reaches your home, it is no longer necessary that it remain chlorinated and, thereby, may be filtered to remove the taste and odor associated with chlorine.
